The name of Scott county to be Changed.

The Abingdon Demorcat, in noticing the arrival in that place of two companies of volunteers from Scott county, says:

‘ "As the companies passed through the streets, three cheers were called for in honor of Scott county. Some member responded, 'it is not Scott county how! We intend to call it Davis county.' And this we learn is the sentiment of the county generally. The people intend to apply to the Legislature to change the name of the county, not desiring that any such disgrace should attach to it as being called after the traitor and parricide, Winfield Scott. This is right."
